72moonglum's WIP

Recommended Posts

So finally had time to work on this, and have it just about finished.  The last thing to do was the shield and I ended up getting stuck as to what to put on it, so as it seems to be my odd pattern, threw a face on it.  Next thing to do, throw some finish on it, base it and it will be done (hopefully).

Yeah, last night I based him (photos coming soon) and thought about a bit of snow on it, but I really didn't want to freeze his nether parts.

So now that those are finished, back to the clerics.  Don't know how well this is going to show up on the camera and it's only in its beginning stages in any case.  Did linen white, then a wash of ghost white, then the gamut of dark elf fleshes (highlights, the mid-tone and shadow), then some walnut brown.  Highlighted it with pure white.  There's a cross on his chest, still trying to figure out what color that's going to be.  Most probable is going to be red, but always willing to take suggestions.

 

Next must move on to metal....  Oh, the pain, and I'm running out of rainy and cloudy grey.  Need to order some more paint soon....

So laying down my metal colors....

 

The thought is two good clerics, two not so good cleric (evil, maychance?)..  So I'm going to paint the two in the grey armor with more traditional Medieval looking colors, whites and reds, and the two other ones will have black and purple armor and then more live colors with their clothing.

So finished the colors for the female cleric's armor last night. The other cleric I did over the weekend. Not so sure if the purples on the chick turned out exactly how I wanted them but will keep plugging on. The next step is going to be the grey armor from the other two clerics and the chain mail on these two.

Took this with my iPhone this morning after seeing the lunar eclipse. Slightly out of focus now that I see it on a larger screen but oh well...

I'm really liking the purple armor on that cleric. I'm not sure what your original plan was but I think that it looks really sharp and is quite suitable for a more evil aligned cleric

Really like the purples, and the unity you get in your miniature painting.

Sometimes the colors clash together and you have to mid tone them to get a feeling

like they belong together, your color choices are more natural, and balanced.

Really great to see that !

Colors "Feel" good.

These are really good! I hate that I keep missing these WIP threads! I swear, you take a day or two off from the forum and you miss a lot of great thread. I'm loving these transitions and tones that you're laying down. It's a very clean and unique style! I'm looking forward to seeing more!

So starting to work on the metal colored metal now.  I started out with cloudy grey, then did a wash of ashen blue, then Templar blue, then ritterlich blue.  As I look at the photo, it doesn't seem as drastic as it does in live right under my lamp, so who knows where this is going?  My next washes will probably be the dark elf triad, with some storm grey thrown in there somewhere, maybe walnut brown, then black finally.  Moving upwards, I'll probably highlight with rainy grey, then misty gray, then ghost white, then pure white.

 

I'm also throwing a photo of Yephima in there too, as I started her armor as well.  With Bones, and take into account that this is the only Bones I've ever painted, it seems sometimes hard for the material to want to grasp the base coat, even with primer. This is with about four layers of paint already.

 

Anyhow, hopefully this weekend I'll be able to continue working on the metals....

Oh Wow, Fantastic Hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I admire anyone that can do what you just did there.

I screw up hair instantly, then spend forever UNDOing what I started out with.

Like the undercoat layer you put on also !

That is so well done :)

Great Job !

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
       
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
       
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

       
      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
       
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!

      Hello Reaperholics!
       
      So I've had this one finished for a few days now, but I usually photograph one sunny days and the last few days have been kind of cloudy.
      I actually really enjoy the figure, once you get paint on her, you bring out more detail.  She's from Ral Partha's Shadowrun range. Her original set came with a dryad and another large elf subtype that I'm also working on. I have the dryad done, but I wasn't happy with her eyes so I'm going to try one more time to fix the eyes before I take final pictures.
      Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!

       
      For whatever reason, I seem to always see magic flame as green, so this mini was no exception!

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?
